  • 小小的日本昭和时代博物馆,收藏品不少,空间不大,空间稍微有点混乱,成人票800日元太高,300到500间比较值得进去看看,对面有家一样很有历史的理发店里面有个很有趣会说英文喜欢收集人形立牌的日本大爷。  more »
  • Fragrant of the candy shop. Star of the Showa era and products exhibited in the interior spaces have at an additional cost. Just another space is a bit high?

  • I stopped by when I went to Alpine. Entered the children and I was surprised at the height of the quality. Enough time. I was a small town of squeaking lower. Worth the admission fee is a bit high but there is! Children will be happy! & Photos.

  • Really interesting museum and a good place to pass time. I was in Takayama for one day and this museum fit perfectly into my day activities list. It's a bit pricey therefore the 4 stars but the contents of the museum are cool and interesting.
  • Little local labor of love, packed with memorabilia displayed in vignette rooms dressed as typical spaces you would have encountered in daily life during the Showa era, 1926-1989 (the years of emperor Hirohito's reign). Items displayed skew heavily toward the 60s to 80s. There is a small English-language pamphlet guide which provides some context, but otherwise you'll simply wander through and interpret the packrat displays as best you can. Some items need no explanation; see photos. 😉
  • This museum is a wealth of information, memorabilia & collectables that rivals Antiques Roadshow. Room upon room stacked with items from Japanese everyday life in the past. So glad to find it and stayed for 4hrs. This is one Takayama site not to be missed.
  • Worth visiting to learn about influence Japanese adaptation to Western imaginery.
  • Fun to look back to 50/60s Japan
